Natural Living Expo
We participated in Natural Living Expo in Des Moines last weekend to have our CSA Expo. We handed out the brochures of different CSAs run by PFI producers in Central Iowa, displayed photos, and had sign-up sheets for those who are interested in hearing more from specific CSA farms. Several farmers also joined us at the booth (Ben Saunders from Turtle Farm, Sally Gran from TableTop Farm, Rick and Stacy Hartmann from Small Potatoes Farm) to talk directly with interested people about their farms. The fresh scent of rosemary transplants that Ben Saunders brought for sale definitely helped attract people to our booth! Our new brochure which summarizes the CSAs by PFI producers in Central Iowa, including information such as the types of shares, costs, delivery sites, was very well received. You can find this handy brochure at: https://www.practicalfarmers.org/images/pdfs/Central%20Iowa%20CSA%20Options%20%282012%29.pdf
It was great to see familiar PFI faces at various booths as well as up on the stage during the Expo.
